Eric Marlon Bishop, known professionally as Jamie Foxx, makes a fantastic Donald Trump impression.
The 54-years-old actor slips into an imitation of the former US president’s trademark hushed tone in a recent interview. A few of Trump’s catchphrases were recited by Foxx during his performance.
During an appearance on Rap Radar, the actor said, “There’s a lot of great people on both sides. I know Harry O. He’s a great person. He couldn’t vote for me at the time. Now he can vote for me once he gets out.”
Foxx, who stars alongside Snoop Dogg in the Netflix film Day Shift, said, “I love Snoop D O double-G. Great person.”
Foxx answered a question about the Death Row record he enjoyed listening to most, which was released in the Nineties and launched the careers of Dr. Dree and Snoop Dogg. In response, he replied, “All of them. I love Death Row records. Don’t try to pin me down.”
Foxx’s impression of the character has gained much praise from fans who have taken to the comments section to applaud the actor’s performance.
One of the fans commented, “Jamie Foxx might be the greatest impersonator ever. Dude is pure talent & straight comedy!!”
“His impersonation of Trump is spot on!” another noted.
A third fan commented, ” Foxx is the most talented entertainer in the game.”
In the past, Foxx has performed impressions of Dave Chappelle and Floyd Mayweather that have wowed fans.
